Meadows Place is located off U.S. Highway 59 in northeastern Fort Bend County, about twenty miles southwest of downtown Houston. The city began as the Meadows Municipal Utility District, which was established in 1967, and the first homes were constructed in 1968. In order to avoid annexation by Houston, Meadows Place incorporated on November 14, 1983. In the 1990s Meadows Place had a number of stores and a theater located in a large shopping center. In 1990 the population was 4,606.
